Sundays Art: Cleopatra by Hans Makart

Cleopatra by Hans Makart May 28Th 1840 - October 3rd 1884, was a 19Th century Austrian academic history painter, designer, and decorator; most well known for his influence on Gustav Klimt and other Austrian artists, but in his own era considered an important artist himself and was a celebrity figure in the high culture of Vienna, attended with almost cult-liked adulation.


  1. What a dramatic and moving painting!

    I've just finished Cleopatra's Daughter and LOVED EVERY WORD!!! I didn't want it to end!

  2. The thing that is weird is to try and see this in its true size. I could not find the size, but it has to be big.

    I can not wait to read Cleopatra's Daughter!
